I came across this motel after searching google maps for somewhere to stay. My stay was most enjoyable right from the time that I checked in. The lady at the desk was most helpful and polite. My room was spacious and clean as was the bathroom. There was no restaurant which was not a worry as it was only a...

This motel is within pleasant walking distance to the waterfront. It is clean with frig and microwave. Very nice room, two double beds. No A/C but not needed. Staff was nice. We spent most of our time in town, walked to everything. and only rested here. I would stay here again. 10- 15 minute walk to Bluenose II and waterfront.

We'd booked the Wheelhouse because it previously had a great restaurant associated with it. When we arrived, we found it was under new management and the restaurant no longer existed. The room itself was clean but the furnishings were very dated. In particular, the beds and pillows were old and springy and even smelled a little of mildew. We compared...

Booked three rooms with credit card confirmations, arrived at 10:15 pm was told 2 of the three rooms were let go of and we would be charged for the third. Had to go to Bridgewater for the night. Confirmation # 2004, 2005, 2006 mean nothing at all. Normally a room secured with a credit means you pay for the room...

I was never so glad to see someone on the evening of a long journey. She helped me, gave me a room and was so considerate. The room is a little dated but never the less very clean and I had a good sleep and the amenities where up all up to date and they do have free wifi. I...

We stayed two nights at this motel. The room was rather dated and dingy, but quiet and the bed was firm, so we slept well. The hostess is very helpful and suggested some restaurants to go to in Lunenberg. She mentioned that we can get better rates by calling her directly than dealing with online websites, so I am passing...

Average motel at an average price. Owner told us where the Timmies, Burger King and Liquor store were in that order before telling us where any of the amazing local attractions were. Does this speak to their normal clientele? The stuff ( TV, fridge , chairs, desk) in the room was all higgledy piggledy along the wall with not a...
